HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA - The Professional Fighters League, the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, held official weigh-ins for PFL Playoffs Women’s Lightweight and Men’s Heavyweight, as the 2021 PFL Playoffs continue on. Headlining the card will be 2019 PFL Champion Kayla Harrison facing Genah Fabian in a women’s Lightweight Final Four Main Event.

Harrison, who comes into the playoffs as the number 2-seed, tipped the scales at 155.6-pounds, and will look to continue her reign of dominance and remain unbeaten against the surging Fabian, who came in at 156-pounds. The winner moves one step closer to the PFL Women’s Lightweight Championship and the million-dollar grand prize waiting at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, top-seeded heavyweight Bruno Cappelozza weighed in at 235.6-pounds, while opponent Jones came in at 250.8-pounds. Both Cappelozza and Jones are looking to cap off impressive debut PFL seasons with an appearance in the heavyweight championship match.

Larissa Pacheco weighed in at 158-pounds, two pounds over the 156-pound limit for the women’s lightweight division and has been disqualified from the 2021 PFL Playoffs. Alternate fighter and 5-seed Mariana Morais will step into the Final Four to face Taylor Guardado with a crack at the PFL title and $1 million champion’s purse.
